EDIT: Thread moved.

Cygwin is pretty crappy, get VMware or Virtualbox, and a Linux distro of your choice - it's a much easier approach.

I agree with dfkt. Vmware using the image we provide is the easiest way, with virtualbox being somewhat harder to setup (you actually have to run!) but much nicer to actually use then vmware.
